Jiggin'

5 posts in this topic

Well this is the time of year where many anglers favorite approach of jig and minnow combo fishing really works well. My clients and I have been doing well jigging and it is about as much fun as you can have. I have great success with fatheads plus they don’t cost an arm and leg and are readily available. Fish in 15 to 30 feet, walleyes run shallower than saugers. We’ve been fishing a lot of the river and covering ground going well south of the Kinni and to the Bayport area with points in between.

Keep Catchin’

I've found that lighter line gives you the ability to use a lighter jig head and increases sensativity, I use 4lb on my favorite jig rod, seems to be work just fine. Fall fishing is no doubt the best, keep jigging! grin.gif

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
